network credentials


one of our employees has connected a network share with another username and password. On the same server is also a personal drive for back-up.
Now he has no access to is own drive because windows use the other username to connect to the server. How can it be changed

thanks for the replies

This may be because he has got his credentials for this store in credential manager in Windows 7 on the desktop/laptop he is using. Go to Control panel > Credential Manager and remove the relevant credential from vault.

Let me know if it has worked.

Sorry, forget to mention. We have a domain network not workgroup. There is nothing in the credential manager

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

There are no users visible.
diconnect the network share manually in explorer and then hit alt in the explorer to setup the network share again manually. please logout between this 2 steps this should work. no reboot just logoff and login

This doesn't work. I think the credential is saved in Windows but can't find it
Kamran MallikIT Technical EngineerCommented:
It can only be saved in Credenitial Manager on Windows 7. If not then when created and mapped the share you may have selected the option to connect using different credentials. Also it may be that the credentials is cached on the server where the share has been created. I would check the server to make sure that all seems fine.

Also I presume you are on domain. Check the user in AD to make sure that the Profile Tab is not pointing to the wrong share.
